Domesticated cats are generally known for their playful nature. It’s true that they will only play when they feel like it, but they usually enjoy goofing around from time to time. But are big cats the same? Well, we can’t speak for all of them, but there’s one thing we know for sure – the lion in the video below loves to play. A lot! Although, lions are mostly seen as fierce animals, this majestic male proves they can also be playful. In fact, there’s nothing this lion likes more than playing.

The lion’s reaction as he got his paws on the foamy toy he loves so much is just adorable and totally surprising considering the things we already know about these ferocious animals.
